VIDEO - Dragon Age: Origins' graphic man-elf gay sex

The hugely popular and critically acclaimed new game Dragon Age: Origins features a graphic scene in which a man and an elf have gay sex.

Could this be the latest 'hidden sex scene' scandal in the games industry? The latest in a series of egg-on-face moments since Rockstar's massively controversial 'Hot Coffee' scandal?

Players of the game can see the graphical representation of a man having sex with a male elf by seducing a warrior elf called Zevran.

Perhaps the only real scandal here is the cheesiness of the chat-up lines ("Can you join me in my tent?", "Is there something in your tent that needs assassinating?","I bet you're good at a lot of things")

It would seem that Zevran is perhaps a little too keen to be seduced, in TechRadar's humble opinion… (Culture, Dev, Dragon Age: Origins, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is just plain disgusting. No need for this kind of crap in the game.
Myst  +   1973d ago
Well you can bypass it...I mean he is bisexual so just make a female character then you won't have to see it.

oh my god GAY SEX! The world is coming to an end. Who the f#ck cares? I for one appreciate Bioware's efforts in offering gaymers an opportunity to start relationships with the gender they feel drawn to. You think gaymers give a flying f#ck about banging Morrigan as a male, think again. At least now we can get a TRUE romantic experience in a genre that up 'til now was dominated by straight relationships. Personally, I would have gone with Alistair if I could. He's an awesome guy... in a virtual reality kind of way. :D

P.S. You should give the gay angle in Dragon Age a swing if you're straight, and see how we feel for once.

I knew Zevran wanted my nuts...
I think it's great to put this kind of stuff in games. It does add a decent amount of authenticity to the game, and further enrages the anti-gay, far Right voting bloc.
Darkstorn  +   1972d ago
@1.2-
You can bypass it by NOT having sex with Zevran as well...
ThePostalDudeX  +   1973d ago
Oh god.....if it's as graphic as the hot coffee mod then it shouldn't have been two guys, I mean really who wants to see that? Morrigan I WANT YOU WITH YOUR TOP OFF INSIDE MY TENT! NOW!
LiquifiedArt  +   1973d ago
Just another reason to skip this game. Thanks Bioware.
:)

Made my choice easy.
sandwiches  +   1973d ago
I don't know why homophobes like you are tripping. It's not like you HAVE TO have sex with ANYONE in the game. Gay or not.
SprSynJn  +   1972d ago
@sandwiches
Looks like someone wishes he was the elf.
kydrice  +   1972d ago
I'll have to agree with sandwiches, the game is great and you're not forced to have sex with anyone. The only way you're gonna end up in bed with the elf is if you ask for it. The game is pretty fun but I'm not a big fan of the fighting. It feels so disconnected, KotoR fighting was way better.

marioporter  +   1973d ago
What a bunch of homophobes...
Title says it all. You don't have a problem with girl on girl, or guy on girl in video games. Besides, that's not even THAT "graphic". Puh-lease. I've seen more action in your grandmother's bedroom.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1972d ago
It's not homophoby if girl on girl is OK. What happens is most games are males that like hot chicks (no matter what kind of sex they are having) and whom don't feel confortable watching two guys having fun with a boner (I know I don't). It homophoby if we go out of our way to discriminate or in any way harm people for their sexual preference, we have to respect each other (in any content) but don't mean we have to like what other people like.

It's like you call me a racist for prefering natural redheads.

That said gay sex in this game is no different than gay kissing in Bully, only gonna happen if you go out of your way trying it, no big deal, they aren't pushing any further than GOW or GTA (sex as an action you go for if you want to), it's no reason to avoid the game.
Rocket Sauce  +   1972d ago
It's not a big deal. I just think the dude's Spanish accent is hilarious.
adsaidler  +   1973d ago
dude, you'll only see gay sex in dragon age IF you try to have a gay relationship with another npc. it's not like it's going to happen even if you don't look for it X_X

"Players of the game can see the graphical representation of a man seducing a warrior elf called Zevran."

This one paragraph makes the whole article void imo.
It just shows that the mindless drones that come up with new ways to whinge about stuff don't even pay the slightest bit of attention to.

In what way is it a graphic representation?
They have their underwear on, it's just them cuddling and kissing.
Yeah, real scandal material there, especially when we're not living in the 50's and it has an M/18 rating.

Plus, although a small point, it shows this drone's complete lack of observation.
"warrior elf called Zevran"
Zevran isn't a Warrior. He's a Rogue.
So wonder what other points, maybe even ones on a larger scale, that he misses...

He's just like the same idiots that complain about No Russian.
You know the way that they have no clue about the story and reasons behind why you do it and they somehow omit that it can be skipped.

I have not seen that.....now i know to avoid it.....G...a....y
kraze07  +   1972d ago
I'm guessing all the people disgusted by this haven't actually played the game seeing as how it's not graphic at all and you'll only see the scene if you try to have a gay relationship with the character in the game. People need to stop being homophobes.
PLAYSTATIONGENRATION  +   1972d ago
...
So your a homophobe....if you see something disgusting and express that you don't like it?
Then I will be one.......because by your logic I should like what i see?
ButterToast  +   1972d ago
^ homophobe

gay sex isn't a big deal. period. grow up.
SprSynJn  +   1972d ago
Here here!
And neither is bestiality. I love your logic ButterToast!
kraze07  +   1972d ago
"So your a homophobe....if you see something disgusting and express that you don't like it?"

Only if whatever you find disgusting happens to be homosexual.
ButterToast  +   1972d ago
the fact that you would equate having sex with another human to having sex with your dog speaks for itself.

nycredude  +   1972d ago
Not for nothing but I don't see a problem with gay sex OR beastiality as long as everyone consents to it. Of course we don't really know what the animal is thinking unless it is Lassy, Bingo, or Beethoven.
Cosquae  +   1972d ago
I notice no one is complaining about the female/female sex scene that's possible in game?
PLAYSTATIONGENRATION  +   1972d ago
..
I like girls......would like two girls....That is for girls to complain about....thats like mixing strawberry ice cream and vanilla ice cream..not saying i agree or disagree with them together but they look pretty together.....
raWfodog  +   1972d ago
Of course the vast majority of straight dudes wouldn't complained about girl/girl sex scenes, unless the girls are butch *yuck*.

What straight dude wants to see two men getting it on?

@ everyone: If you don't want to see it, just don't make those choices that will put you in the tent with the gay elf :)

i'm not sure what the big deal here is? if your a straight guy then i highly doubt you'll try suducing the elf. So it really shouldn't matter to you
DiffusionE  +   1972d ago
This is not news. Why is everybody acting surprised? This topic was posted on this site even before the official game release. Nobody complained back then.

BTW, Dragon Age: Origins isn't about gay-sex. In fact, it isn't even about sex at all. You get to see it performed only if you choose to go down that road, and even then, only if you're very specific about it. And why would any self-respecting gamer play it just for the sex-scenes? This game is simply an amazing RPG, a rare kind of gem that we get to see only once every 5 years or so.

I'm so sick of these no-name writers looking for a few cheap hits.
robotnik  +   1972d ago
Only on the Xbox 360 version. And they loooooove it!
;)
raWfodog  +   1972d ago
Not the first time
The same thing applied to Jade Empire and Mass Effect. Your choices COULD lead you to straight/gay relationships but it wasn't a necessary part of the game.
LatinoGaymer  +   1972d ago
get over yourselves
Get over yourselves. sure you straight guys appreciate the lesbo sex but us gay guys dont. we appreciate the gay sex, hell we're also forced to appreciate straight sex lol. you guys arent the only kind of gamers out there. remember we all buy games so we all have the right to enjoy them in our own way.
LatinoGaymer  +   1972d ago
@11

your not a homophobe for being disgusted, your a homophobe for avoiding it cause it contains gay sex.
SprSynJn  +   1971d ago
Nope, that makes him normal. What does that make you?
LatinoGaymer  +   1971d ago
sorry to burst your bubble
but theres no such thing as normal. maybe look at yourself and realise that cause im sure there is something about you that people could start hating on.
SprSynJn  +   1971d ago
Whatever helps you sleep at night homie. Keep reaching for that rainbow.
Enigma_2099  +   1972d ago
We can't say ANYTHING!
We didn't have a problem in GTA, God of War, Masse Effect, etc...

So they put something in it to cater to the alternative set... we're going to complain about sex in games NOW?
